    Workplace Temperature Screening: Who, Where and How

    The notion that U.S. employers would engage in broad-scale temperature screening of employees and visitors would have once been unthinkable.

With the encouragement of the CDC and certain state and local governments, and a green light from the EEOC, many employers are implementing daily temperature screening as one means of keeping their employees healthy.
